OK they are not cheap but quality costs more, I dont own these but Halfords Pro range is usually pretty good.

* Made from professional quality chrome vanadium steel
* Needs as little as 5° to move fastener
* 180° head allows access to tight spaces
* Ring end drives on fastener flats to avoid rounding off and reduce wear
* Sizes: 8x9, 10x11, 12x14, 13x15, 17x19mm

Seen some single head ones cheaper but not the doubles. Added some heat but I expect some might vote cold if they don't take note that these are the double ended/head version.

Ive got the ones that are ratchet one end and a standard spanner the other end and I must say they are very good and very strong!

I think that set is £39.99 in store for a 10 piece.... so I guess you get a set of 'fixed' head spanners for the extra £10 in effect. I was looking at them yesterday pondering whether to buy them.

Personally, although this is a good price and no reason for anyone to vote cold... I prefer the ratchet one end and open the other.

Reason being is that you will always get one bolt that is close to a back plate or wall and the end of the ratchet won't fit over it (fine example is a table leg, try taking a set of table legs off with a ratchet). Hence why they are not all double ended...

Note: the Halfords Advanced Professional 33 Piece Ratchet Spanner Set Cat code: 282046-0 which is £39.99 does not have the flex head ratchets, they are fixed.

The Halfords Professional 10 Piece Flex-head Ratchet Spanner Set Cat code: 517375-0 has flex head ratchets one end and open the other but is £79.99, and doesn't have an 11mm socket. Maybe it will be on offer at some point reduced to a price similar to the other sets.

thank you for sharing

Only problem is if the ratchet breaks (and it will do if you try use it like a power bar) it is unlikely Halfords will replace under the lifetime guarantee.

Aldi sold a set of flexi head ratchet spanners in their specials for about £15 a set at one point and they sold out very quickly.

I don't think they are really intended to be used to break the grip of really stubborn fastenings but to save time and effort when undoing them once loosened. I really, really could have done with a set when I replaced the anti-roll bar mounts on my last car so I think I will buy a set.

I realise I may have been at cross purposes. The ones I saw in store were £39.99 down from £69.99 (I think) and were flexi ratchet at one end and fixed at the other. There were 10 of them. I worked out the individual prices of each totalled up would be well over £110.
